I am new to the list, and I'm a newbie on conlanging as well. I have already
learned a lot reading previous threads here, and got a bunch of ideas. Thanks!
This first message is to present you my first conlang, Classical Ályis
(which was supposed to be written with a breve rather than an acute accent
on the A, but I'm not sure if Unicode issues lurk around here). It's a
rather synthetic language, featuring both relational and derivational
synthesis, and a fairly developed case system with 21 cases. (To my glad
surprise, long after I started this project, I have found unintentional
similarities with Swahili and Japanese.)
I didn't want anything phonologically exotic for my first conlang (as I
intend to be fluent on it someday), so its consonant and vowel inventory is
rather plain. And, since it's a constructed language in its own (con)world,
there's a considerable amount of regularity.
Well, as I said, it's my first conlang, and my linguistic skills are far
from an experts'. So, I'd be glad to see some opinions on its structure. My
most current draft can be found at
I'm actively working on it right now, and so I'm open to suggestions and
criticism. I'm really looking forward to knowing what your opinions are
Hope to see you later!
